Mental Wellness Grant Applications Due Oct. 1

Applications for this year’s grants from the Mental Wellness in Cattaraugus County Fund at the Cattaraugus Region Community Foundation will be due Oct. 1.

“We know that the mental wellness of a community and its members is integral to its overall health and wellness,” said Karen Niemic Buchheit, CRCF executive director. “We also know that the COVID-19 pandemic has put additional stress on the mental health of so many, making this fund and its purpose even more essential this year.”

Grants from this fund support program services and activities that promote and support mental wellness in Cattaraugus County.

Typically grants will range from $500 to $1,500, but up to $4,000 may be available for special projects, particularly those that impact vulnerable and/or disadvantaged individuals.

The grant application can be accessed at cattfoundation.org/grant-seekers/grant-opportunities/.

Nonprofit agencies with questions about the grant application process are encouraged to contact CRCF at 301-2723 or foundation@cattfoundation.org

Former members of the dissolved Mental Health Association of Cattaraugus County established the fund to financially support programs and activities that promote mental wellness in Cattaraugus County.

Donations can be made to the Mental Wellness in Cattaraugus County Fund at CRCF, 301 N. Union St., Suite 203, Olean, NY 14760 or online at cattfoundation.org.
